OAMC Cooking DONE! and $10 more to savings challenge

April 15th, 2007 at 05:43 pm

Well, it's been a long day but I got the following OAMC done today:

5 days of chili
4 days of taco chicken
2 days of orange chicken
2 days of balsamic chicken
4 days of black bean quesidillas
4 days of whole-wheat lasagna/spinach rolls (vegetarian)
4 days of whole-wheat pizzas
2 days of meatloaf
4 days of vegetarian stir=fry
4 days of red pepper spaghetti sauce
Whole wheat pancakes, french toast for breakfast on the weekends.

Also walked 10 miles this weekend, adding $10 to my savings challenge. I can't wait to put my new totals up for April in a few weeks.

Homemade cornbread, barley pilaf, mexican brown rice, blueberry whole-wheat oatmeal muffins, raspberry sorbet. Also have lots of frozen veggies and will buy fresh veggies/fruit for the coming weeks. Also put together several whole wheat bread mixes so I can use the breadmaker to make fresh bread 1-2x a week as needed.

    You did all that this weekend? Wow I am impressed. We thought we did good grilling the carnitas DH made after we grilled tonight's steaks. We will eat tomorrow and freeze the rest. By the way, here is the recipe, it freezes really well. It was published in our local paper so I assume it is okay to reprint? Simple and delicious!


    2 pounds boneless pork loin cut into 2-3 inch chunks
    2 tsp salt
    tsp cumin
    tsp oregano
    2 pressed garlic gloves
    onion, thinly sliced
    2 tsp sugar or brown sugar
    1 tablespoon lemon juice

    Place pork, spices, garlic and onion in a large stockpot. Cover slightly with water and bring to a boil. Cover pan and reduce heat. Simmer for one hour. Add sugar and lemon juice. Remove lid and simmer until liquids have nearly boiled off.

    The carnitas can then be grilled before serving them. However, they can be served as is immediately or frozen and stored for future use.

    Serves 8
